EL SEGUNDO, CA — On June 24, the Los Angeles Kings announced that President/General Manager Dean Lombardi, Vice President/Assistant General Manager Ron Hextall, Vice President/Hockey Operations and Legal Affairs Jeff Solomon and Head Coach Terry Murray were signed to two-year contract extensions.
All had one year remaining on their current contracts, which now extend through the 2012-13 season.
“Dean and his staff want to be here, they want to help finish what we have all started and we feel we are on the verge of something very special, so it was imperative that we keep our nucleus together,” said Kings Governor Tim Leiweke.
“The timing was right to do this, and now our focus shifts to the NHL Draft this weekend here at Staples Center and LA Live into free agency next week and to the rest of summer as we look to add a piece or two—the right piece or two—to this great young core we have together here with the Kings,” added Leiweke.
